New-look play area in Lostock Gralam nears completion

A £110,000 project to create ‘state-of-the-art’ play facilities for children in Lostock Gralam should be completed by mid-November.

The first phase of the scheme to revamp the dilapidated Stubbs Lane play area was finished last December at a cost of about £73,500 and work is now under way on the second part – a brand new play zone for toddlers.

Groundwork Cheshire and Lostock Gralam Parish Council, who have led the renovation programme, have spent almost a year securing the additional funding needed.

The Veolia Environmental Trust has stumped up £25,000, with Cheshire West and Chester Council contributing £6,286 and the parish council £4,864.

Parish council spokeswoman Nicola Clarke said: “This is the final piece of the jigsaw to complete the play area and we are very grateful to both Veolia and Cheshire West and Chester Council for their contribution.”
